A beautiful day in the neighborhood :)

As the girls are marinading in the tub (don't worry, they are being watched) I though I'd blog about our great day.

We got up this morning and had breakfast then packed for the zoo. I haven't been to the zoo with them by myself before. I wasn't really sure how to get to this zoo but we figured it out and had an awesome time. They were very well behaved and .... I had to get them out of the tub so I lost my train of thought .. hmmm Oh yeah. We went to lunch and went home.

They passed out in the car but as soon as we got home, they woke up. When Donald got home we decided to take a bus to Hoboken and let the girls play in the sandpit at Frank Sinatra Park. Yeah the sandpit grosses me out a bit if I think about it, so I don't. I let the girls play all they wanted . .. for 3 hours. We shared a Ritas Geletini (juicy pear, yumm!) and went to Tunes, a second hand music store. While waiting for the bus I ran in and bought a bottle of water to rinse the girls hands and faces. They were so dirty (thus the marinading in the tub).

This was the girls first and second time on a bus. They loved it. Of course they didn't understand why they had to sit down so that was an issue but it was less than 5 minutes so it wasn't too bad.

The weather was perfect as well. I love Spring. Such a beautiful season.

Work has so many things coming up as well. This coming week we are spending the week celebrating the Young Child with things like silly hat and sock day, ice cream sundae day, costume day, picnic day and pajama day. We are also learning the letter P so I thought a Pasta Party would tie up the lesson just fine. That should be great. All the parents signed up to bring something. We are planning a Mothers Day snack party and so far 100% of the moms are attending. I was worried some moms wouldn't be able to make it and I felt bad but it doesn't look to be the case.

I am having a hard time with the menu though. I thought about decorating cupcakes but I have egg allergies, so I thought mini english muffin fruit pizzas would be yummy. I also thought a chocolate/pretzel snack mix would be good but who knows. Anyway for the fruit pizzas I thought we'd start with a toasted english muffin, strawberry cream cheese and strawberries and blueberries on top.

I'm open to ideas :)

First of all, the English muffin fruit pizzas sound delicious! I think the idea of a popcorn and pretzel snack mix is also really fun. You could do lots of different add-ins, like dried fruit, M & Ms, etc., depending on what allergies you have in the class. That would be really fun for the kids to do! I'll try to come up with a few more ideas for you too :)
